KILLER KUTS #28



Yet another killer find at WFMU. Getting in early
with a dealer badge really pays off! When it comes to
minimal synth stuff, this is considered a Holy Grail
by many, yet shunned by other collectors because
it has a dancey beat and too much melody.
Released in 1982, Pitch was a two piece NYC based
minimal synth group, and this self-released 12" on
their On/Off Records label is one of the more
mysterious NYC bands of the era. They existed within
the whole no wave scene, yet noone I spoke to knew
who they were. Upon further inspection I discovered
one of the principal songwriters, Marc Cantor, is an
internet and computer pioneer. His entire
bio is here:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Marc_xCanter

But in a nutshell, he pretty much developed the
company known as Macromedia, and was also
responsible for programming the first ever licensed
music for a video game ("Peter Gunn" for Spyhunter).
And, he worked with the first Macintosh computers...
Today he is more known as a pioneer in the blog
world, believe it or nor- with his work in micro-
content publishing.

if you go to his blog:

http://marc.blogs.it/

you can find a link to a download of a track he wrote
in 1981. Totally rad!


This all makes sense when you think of it. He was
making computer music.. speaking of which, the A-side
"What Am I Gonna Do For Fun" is an amazing track.
Dry female vocals over what can only be described as
'cosmic minimal synth'. It can easily pass for something
that is popular today. The record cover is also awesome-
a multi color silkscreen job, which leads me to believe
this was a pretty limited run.
On another note, i am closer to getting this blog sorted
out and putting up music. SO keep an eye out.

this is a great blog, so thanks for all the work. here in San Francisco, although you would assume the opposite, there has been little or no disco going on. we have Bus Station John, but he spins exclusively at gay bars rather than more hip places that SHOULD be taste making. it makes no difference to me, and i go see him frequently. still, the younger (under 40) crowd only attends events with cameras. of course. alas, only recently have a few of us been lucky enough to stumble on a hidden disco diaspora who have just begun to give going out a second chance. so, it's nice to set up a night, see people dancing to Banana Records re-edits and Mandre, and not lose money at the bar. anyway, thanks for the blogging. cheers.

Spartan Keto This is one of the most common weight loss myths out there. It is illogical to think that your health and weight are going to be in balance if your nutrition consists mainly of twinkies, chips, and donuts. Sure you can burn it off by exercising, but most people whose diet consists of mainly junk food are probably not disciplined enough to stick to a workout routine. I do know a few people who, from the outside, look like they are in good shape, because they are not "fat, but who have high cholesterol.

Ultimate Keto Boost Last, and potentially more profitable for the weight loss industry, are devices, supplements and other products intended to produce weight loss. These include diet pills, natural weight loss supplements containing acai, African mango and a range of other substances, plus belts and other devices. The basic principle behind some of these products has been shown to help with reduction when it's combined with other mainstream methods, but the majority of diet pills and other products don't do much to help. They can even be harmful to your health.

Fusion Rise Keto Compare this to a non-traditional keto snack such as an apple at a 100 calories, and which do you think is better for your weight loss plan? You could even add some peanut butter to the apple to help better balance it out and you would still be under 200 calories, way less than the calories in the keto snack.

Best Back Massager Other electric back massagers are handheld and look very much like a regular shower-head. A button is pressed and the tip either vibrates, rolls, beats, or kneads. Handheld electric back massagers are great for isolated aches and pains and are more flexible in treating muscle pains for it can be used to treat thighs and arms as well. Some handheld electric massagers come with infra-red devices that claim to sooth and rejuvenate tired muscles. These handheld massagers are great for massaging not only yourself, but your loved ones as well.

First and fundamental it's miles believed that as they have a excessive deductible threshold, the insured could be extra fitness aware. Also they may be greater price aware. The high deductibles will encourage people to be extra careful about their health and health care costs and will make them store for bargains and be extra vigilant in opposition to excesses inside the fitness care enterprise.
